Strange bug? Spaces appearing after cursor, cursor stays in place.

Several of us on our team are using LO 6.3.4 on MacOS (Mojave). We've continued to encounter strange behavior when trying to edit existing text.

Every so often when I want to edit an an existing sentence, I'll click where I want to edit to place the cursor, then I'll hit space, and start typing to insert a word or two. The spaces do not insert correctly -- they are added after the cursor, and the cursor stays in place. If I hit the space bar again, it adds another space after the cursor. Sometimes I can temporarily fix the problem by moving the cursor -- clicking elsewhere or using the arrow keys to leave and come back. Sometimes that fixes the problem for a bit, sometimes it doesn't. It makes typing frustrating, and editing an existing document a very slow task.

Has anyone else experienced something like this? Is there a way to fix this? It makes LO almost unusable for daily work.
